The Stone Mansion
The Stone Mansion (the original Ruscombe Mansion ca. 1863) is restored for use as offices. The building has been nominated for the Baltimore City Landmarks List, andis eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.These designations will ensure Ruscombe's perpetual existence.
Rehab began in the Spring of 2006, and included exterior work: stone pointing, roof repair, window and door restoration, replacement shutters, and painting. Inside, the remnants from the school use were removed, and original moldings, hardwood floors, historic trim and hardware were restored.
New HVAC was added, as well as modern data and electrical wiring. The original floor plan was maintained. In the yard, renovations included tree pruning, removal of "weed trees" particularly near Springarden Drive, fence repair, replacement or selective removal, garden and lawn improvement.
The carriage house was rehabbed and is available for rental, with 17 on site parking places provided basically on top of the existing blacktop area. New landscaping was added to screen the parking here as needed. It has always been our plan to make the Stone Mansion the centerpiece of the community.
